The Federal Government has confirmed it will take COVID-19 vaccination to churches and other worship centres.
This is in addition to already concluded arrangements for corporate vaccination.
Dr. Faisal Shuaib, the Executive Director, National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA), disclosed the plans at the sensitisation of Christian leaders on phase two of COVID-19 vaccination in Abuja, yesterday.
Shuaib said: “I am glad to inform you that from this phase two of the COVID-19 vaccine roll out, we have introduced Sunday vaccination.
“This is to ensure members of the Christian community who may not have had access to the vaccines for whatever reason are given an opportunity to be vaccinated at their worship places.
“I must say that feedback from the field is very encouraging and I sincerely thank all Christian leaders who have given the vaccination team access to their churches and their members to receive COVID-19 vaccine during Sunday service.”
